    Re: HOW TO: Install and configure lm-sensors

    Hi Gossie,

    The +127C is probably the high limit for the lm-sensors monitoring. Probably can be set in the sensors.conf but i am not so sure. I am using the sensors applet to monitor my temperatures.

    I have just setup the pwmconfig and it works like charm

    Re: HOW TO: Install and configure lm-sensors

    I tried following the instructions, but on the reboot, grub selected ubuntu fine, but the screen went dead. I tried undoing as much of the stuff as I could, including uninstalling lm-sensors, but nothing. In recovery mode, I used to get some message about sensors failing while booting. Don't get it after I tried fixing it.

    Re: HOW TO: Install and configure lm-sensors

    Sorry, no chips were detected.
    Either your sensors are not supported, or they are
    connected to an I2C bus adapter that we do not support.
    See doc/FAQ, doc/lm_sensors-FAQ.html, or
    http://www2.lm-sensors.nu/~lm78/cvs/...nsors-FAQ.html
    (FAQ #4.24.3) for further information.
    If you find out what chips are on your board, see
    http://secure.netroedge.com/~lm78/newdrivers.html for driver status.


    I got to sensors-detect and answered yes to all the questions and i get the following output at the end.

    i tried going to the websites but they require a password

    Re: HOW TO: Install and configure lm-sensors

    I have the below motherboard

    MSI P6N SLI Platinum motherboard with the NVIDIA nForce 850i chipset

    I had seen mention that others were having difficulty with this particular board in getting lm-sensors to work

    I am still working on this but i feel I am on the right path


    I2C/SMBUS BUS DRIVERS - STATUS
    nVidia MCP51, MCP55 yes i2c-nforce2 2.10.1 2.6.18

    SENSOR CHIP DRIVERS - STATUS
    Fintek F71882FG/F71883FG yes

    according to the above the device list indicates for my motherboard lm-sensors has been working since 2.10.1 with kernel version 2.6.18. for the sensor chip drivers i heard that someone has this working with this motherboard, but they did not post a howto. I had seen browsing the web.

    my problem is i can not find the driver to download to install anywhere. I also am thinking i need to update my kernel to have the i2c-nforce2 support.

    # uname -a
    Linux adub-desktop 2.6.17-12-generic #2 SMP Mon Jul 16 19:37:58 UTC 2007 i686 GNU/Linux

    it appears i need to update kernel for i2c-nforce2 support for my particular bus drivers "i think"
    although lspci list them but i think for them to work with lmsensors then maybe the update is needed

    now on the fintek driver i have no clue rebuild kernel 100% clueless

    Re: HOW TO: Install and configure lm-sensors

    I did just fine till I had to plug the sensors in.

    Any suggestions?

    Re: HOW TO: Install and configure lm-sensors

    This is an excellent How to. I just wanted to ask which one is the Harddrive temperature. I know that I have a hard drive temperature sensor but I don't see and output for it, or maybe one of them is the Hard drive temperature but I just don't know it yet.
    Thanks in advance.

    Re: HOW TO: Install and configure lm-sensors

    lm-senors worked flawlessly on my desktop now when I try to get them working on my laptop(dell latitude c640) i get the following:

    Code:
    # sensors-detect revision 4171 (2006-09-24 03:37:01 -0700)
    
    This program will help you determine which kernel modules you need
    to load to use lm_sensors most effectively. It is generally safe
    and recommended to accept the default answers to all questions,
    unless you know what you're doing.
    
    We can start with probing for (PCI) I2C or SMBus adapters.
    Do you want to probe now? (YES/no): y
    Probing for PCI bus adapters...
    Sorry, no known PCI bus adapters found.
    
    We will now try to load each adapter module in turn.
    If you have undetectable or unsupported adapters, you can have them
    scanned by manually loading the modules before running this script.
    
    We are now going to do the I2C/SMBus adapter probings. Some chips may
    be double detected; we choose the one with the highest confidence
    value in that case.
    If you found that the adapter hung after probing a certain address,
    you can specify that address to remain unprobed.
    
    Some chips are also accessible through the ISA I/O ports. We have to
    write to arbitrary I/O ports to probe them. This is usually safe though.
    Yes, you do have ISA I/O ports even if you do not have any ISA slots!
    Do you want to scan the ISA I/O ports? (YES/no): y
    Probing for `National Semiconductor LM78' at 0x290...       No
    Probing for `National Semiconductor LM78-J' at 0x290...     No
    Probing for `National Semiconductor LM79' at 0x290...       No
    Probing for `Winbond W83781D' at 0x290...                   No
    Probing for `Winbond W83782D' at 0x290...                   No
    Probing for `Winbond W83627HF' at 0x290...                  No
    Probing for `Silicon Integrated Systems SIS5595'...         No
    Probing for `VIA VT82C686 Integrated Sensors'...            No
    Probing for `VIA VT8231 Integrated Sensors'...              No
    Probing for `AMD K8 thermal sensors'...                     No
    Probing for `IPMI BMC KCS' at 0xca0...                      No
    Probing for `IPMI BMC SMIC' at 0xca8...                     No
    
    Some Super I/O chips may also contain sensors. We have to write to
    standard I/O ports to probe them. This is usually safe.
    Do you want to scan for Super I/O sensors? (YES/no): y
    Probing for Super-I/O at 0x2e/0x2f

    I2C or SMBus adapter that is not supported. See doc/FAQ,

    Can anyone help me get this working on my laptop?

    Install i8kutils and sensors-applet. Make sure to load i8k kernel module and you are ready.

    I reran the scripts, ran Sensor-detect, installed the required Kernal moduals, but alas when I do 'sensors' I get No Sensors Found,
    What can I do to fix this?
    nterestingly upgrading to 7.04 Fiesty Fixed this problem for me, I now have Temps and Fans, yippy! v-happy now.

    Re: HOW TO: Install and configure lm-sensors

    Hi!
    I have some problems with ls-sensors...
    I have the P4B motherboard, so the SMBus is hidden and therefore lm-sensors-detect can't find anything...

    I've read about the patch for 2.4-kernels, but i'm running 2.6.
    I don't know if I understood this matter correctly, but is it so that I have to edit and recompile the kernel with the quirks.c part changed?
    I'm an absolute beginner with linux, so I will not attempt to do this...

    My second quesition is if anybody knows if there will be support for the P4B motherboard in upcoming kernels?
